About Me

When I think of my childhood and where I was raised, I think Allentown, Pennsylvania. I attended George Washington University in Washington, D.C. for 2 years where I met my husband, a Sandusky, Ohio native. After following him back to Ohio, I finished my college education at Bowling Green State University, earning a BA degree in Political Science in 1984. I attended law school at the University of Toledo, earning a JD degree in 1992 and admission to the Bar in 1993. I currently reside in Perkins Township, Erie County, Ohio, with my husband, a school administrator, and my 3 wonderful children, one of whom is a proud, second-generation graduate of George Washington University, another who attends Michigan State University, and the youngest who attends Perkins Public Schools.​
Professionally, I have worked as an associate attorney with the Sandusky law firm of Buckingham, Lucal, McGookey and Zeiher for 8 years before opening my own solo practice in 2002. My practice focuses primarily on all aspects of domestic relations law (divorce, dissolution, child custody/visitation, child support, and domestic violence), as well as criminal defense (both felonies and misdemeanors). I practice frequently in Juvenile Court, representing juveniles in criminal and delinquency matters, as well as a Guardian ad Litem for children involved in Children’s Services cases who have been adjudicated dependent, neglected or abused, along with children involved in private custody disputes. I also work in Probate Court, handling estates, guardianships, and adoptions. A more recent area of interest in my practice is assisting children with special education issues and their parents in navigating the IEP process with school districts and identifying services. My interest in this area is the result of personal experience as a parent; therefore I can offer clients a unique perspective in this area; a personal one. I practice in all Municipal, Common Pleas, Juvenile and Probate Courts in Erie, Huron, Sandusky, Ottawa and surrounding counties.
